This is a quick post to support a new fresh Azure Portal feature which will help a lot of Admins in some cases.
You all know that you cannot create as Azure Resources as you want, and that there are Limits and Quotas for the number of deployed resources. Such information is very important and I can say crucial when designing your Azure infrastructure.
I can note some examples like :
- Network Security Groups : By default, you cannot create more than 100 NSG objects within an Azure Region (Azure Resource Manager limit model, ASM limit model is per Subscription not per region). So if you are using NSGs to secure your environment, you will need to track the objects count usage –> This is the object of this post
- Static Public IP addresses : By default, you cannot create more than 20 static Public IP addresses within an Azure Region. So monitoring and tracking this resource usage is important
You can always visit the official link for the last information about the service limits, the quotas and the constraints. Keep in mind that for several resources, you can ask the Microsoft Support to increase a limit value.
Back to the post main goal, you can by now consult the usage of your resources and the status against the quota values.
Go to the Azure Portal (Portal.azure.com) –> Subscriptions –> Select the Subscription –> Usage + Quotas
You can filter the items to have more customized view. You can use the link to directly open a Support case to increase the limits.
